conservative media had been saying about this. right? he believed some conservative thing that president obama never used the word terror when he described this attack. when, in fact, the president had. it led to that horrible fact checking moment, live fact checking in the debate. is john mccain, and these guys, dana warbaucher, gene schmidt, trying to make it into a political scandal, are they making the same mistake, they're pursuing a narrative circulating on the right but isn't based in fact? >> i'd add darrell issa on that. he held the hearings on benghazi a month before the election and bungled them. he released documents without even check with anyone. and the bottom line here is there are legitimate questions about the benghazi attack and a lot of information we haven't gotten but that's all become secondary to the sort of political fight between the republicans in congress who want to assert that they still have the control of the foreign policy issue, and they want to assert that obama's weak on foreign policy though the election is over and the actual responsible lawmakers who want
's so bizarre. >> that's bizarre. >> so scary. wow. >>> all right. moving on to some other news on this holiday, monday morning. it is, of course, veterans day, 2012, the federal holiday observed right now. president obama among those marking the actual commemoration yesterday. the 11th day of this 11th month of the year. >> yes, the president laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknowns at arlington national cemetery in virginia, noting that this is the first veterans day in ten years that u.s. troops are not fighting in iraq and that the war in afghanistan is winding down. >> after a decade of war, our heroes are coming home. and over the next few years more than a million servicemembers will transition back to civilian life. they'll take off their uniforms and take on a new and lasting role. they will be veterans. >> and the nfl is honoring veterans with its "salute to service" campaign. for every point scored in a total of 32 games, $100 is donated to charities that help vets and active duty military. >> that's a great to hear. great to hear too. all the veterans out there, we
cliff he's not saying we're going to agree with president obama on anything yet right? >> not yet. at least publicly, he's just reheating the old romney proposal which is if you close deductions, that's where you get your revenue. not from letting the high end tax cuts expire. the high-end tax cuts expire. what obama had been campaigning on and what voters want overwhelmingly. so you know, the administration has actually been fairly optimistic about where boehner is and negotiating with boehner and negotiating maybe with some of the rank and file who are more likely to come to an agreement. maybe go into the senate. and doing this very publicly. they're meeting with a lot of groups with labor groups, with business groups and they've learned their lesson. this idea that in 2011 last year, they could just sit in a room with boehner, hatch out a deal and all would be done. clearly didn't work out very well. after the election, i think the president feels he has a mandate on these issues. if it doesn't w
minister of cambodia because president obama spent most of the meeting raising concerns about human rights issues. president obama received an incredibly warm welcome and as he visited myanmar yesterday, the country had long been considered an outcast. the president praised its progress but made clear that the u.s. support would disappear if the democratic reforms were not continued. >> the flickers of process that we've seen mutt not be extinguished. they must continue and become a shining north store for all of the people. >> reporter: in myanmar president obama met with the reform leader at the home where she spent years under arrest arrest. president obama meets with chinese and japanese leaders tomorrow. reporting live from washington, d.c., alison burns, ktvu channel 2 news. >> 7:17. now we're hearing from a girlfriend of tech pioneer john mcafee. police want to question mcafee about the murder of his neighbor, americans aboutman, gregory fall. over the weekend, mcafee eight parent -- apparent i started posting to a blog -- apparently starting posting to a blog about the harassing go
cliff. >> yes, they say that the office of the presidency travels with president obama wherever he goes, goes, and that is the case in thin stance as he makes that historic trip to southeast asia and you are right, he made calls to the weekend to business leaders including warren buffett, and jamie dimon and the president as apple as well as boeing and costco and really trying to get a number of stakeholders on board to prevent the fiscal cliff. this is something that came up in the overseas trip, and in fact, he was touring a monastery in thailand and he actually asked a monk to pray for him and lawmakers as they hammer out a deal, and he later clarified the comments in a news conference and listen to the comments that the president made. >> we may need a prayer -- >> i always believe in prayer. i believe in prayer when i go to church back home. and if a buddhist monk is wishing me well, i'm going to take whatever good vibes he can give me to try to deal with the challenges back home. >> now, of course, this is just one of the other issues that president obama is focused on while he tr
are they, because a lot of people would say president obama is least center left, right? but it's all comparative, and compared to governor romney, and i really think the republican party, including those statements that akin and murdoch made, seemed like they were far off from the center. and i also think -- so i'm an independent. i can give advice to both parties. >> and they don't have to take it. >> right. and they don't have to take it. the party of ronald reagan and jack kemp, the party of upward mobility, that didn't seem to be the republican party this year, and now maybe it was because of this very effective attack campaign against mitt romney being capital, 47%, all that stuff, but i think hispanics and asians and a lot of women didn't vote for the republican party, not just if you're hispanic because you think they're anti-immigrant, because it didn't seem like the kind of party that was going to create a country in which you were going to have a chance to rise. it seemed by their own statement and really also by the definition democrats gave them as a more exclusive club.
be right for you. >>> we're waiting for president obama's first news conference hins sis re-election. it's his first formal white house news conference since march. let's bring in suzanne malveaux at the cnn center in atlanta. like me, suzanne, you used to cover the white house. you attended a lot of these presidential news conferences. you know what it's like for the reporters to prepare for the president of the united states to prepare. what are you anticipating as you look forward to this news conference that's supposed to be given at the bottom of the hour? >> i think a lot of us will be looking to see whether or not there are any hints as to how he will govern in the differences in the next four years. it was interesting the first week of the presidency pretty astonishing, right? he had a lot of executive offered. the lily ledbetter, and one that shut down guantanamo bay. we will see if he feels as if he really has some sort of mandate here, that he is iffing to be able to govern, to move from the middle, but also to insist what this coalition of supporters has put on his plate. is
democrats and republicans. republicans are critical. they believed the obama administration should have known right away this was not as spontaneous attack. they want to know who knew what, when. did the president know about the attack? when did his national security team know about the attack? there were people in tripoli and libya with the state department saying there was not enough security concerns because of some of the things going on in libya at the time. good >> the senators made remarks about you in ambassador susan rice. what did they say? >> basically, they do not trust her. they think she should have known better. it looked to be a spontaneous response. they think it is clear there was an organized element. the white house is saying, and today we heard from a democrat who said the intelligence community reaffirmed that was the best information they had at the time. she was repeating the information they provided her. now those intelligence committees, they will hear from david petraeus. what do they want to know from former director petraeus? >> they said this was going to
of the solution, they become the totality for the obama administration and i think you're right that people in washington look at yemen and cms and yemen house for a number officials become too hard to do. easiest thing is drones are perfect, so let's do that. i think a very real but unspoken assumption underlying all of this was really brought out over the past month as they went to yemen and back to the united states is that the u.s. seems to believe that this is a war the u.s. can win on its own and i think that's wrong and i think that's a mistake. if this is the u.s. against al qaeda and yemen, if it's framed that way come to seem that way, that's where the u.s. can never win. the only people who ever defeat al qaeda are the yemeni shiites coming in the clerics and so forth. the u.s. can do a lot to help them. unfortunately see right now is the u.s. that is so heavy handedly encouraging that so many strikes and killing so many individuals and yemen, the u.s. is essentially shrinking the space in which individuals can stand up against al qaeda. let me end with one and it goes. there is
of the year. right now, president obama is set today to kick off a series of meetings today with liberal and labor leaders. tomorrow he'll meet with business leaders. friday he's scheduled to meet with the top democrat and the top republican in the house and the senate. so that is expected to go ahead as planned. it really has to. this is a looming crisis that needs to be taken care of. there's another issue and that may have to do with president obama's afghanistan policy. questions about how this latest development with general allen could impact that. is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan at this critical time as president obama figures out how to wind down those 68,000 combat troops that are in afghanistan, that are scheduled to come home, by 2014. the thing is, though, zoraida, general joseph dunford, who is already slated to replace allen is having a confirmation hearing on thursday, the same day that allen was supposed to have his. that is going ahead as scheduled. >> all right. brianna keilar live at the white house for us. thank you very much. and also new this morning, the f

it a policy not to disagree with tom, but he's 100% right on this, that the first question i would assume will be about general petraeus, general allen and sort of more broadly that situation. the issue i think is what does president obama say. clearly he doesn't want to -- i don't think he wants to make any news, at least not purposely on it. and wants to kind of move off of it as quickly as he can. that's not entirely in his hands, of course. if the first question and then the follow-up and the second question and the third question are all somewhat related to that, it becomes harder, how long do they stay on it, does -- do we talk about how much do we talk about benghazi, how much do we talk about israel. you know, that's what's hard about a press conference. you get your say at the start but the reporters ask their questions and you never know where the story goes from there. >> john harris, you've been in that room also as a former white house correspondent and the president is going to be going into this meeting with the business leaders asking for their advice, their terms of refer

on at once, right? racism is still alive and well. and honestly, don't you think some of the scurries about barack obama is just a scratch away from racism? i mean, people are smart enough to know how not to sound racist. so i think that's part of it. you know, let's remember that gay weightman outwait and we have benefited from that privilege forever and there is a lot of racism were to be done within the gay community. another observation that i would make. it's just a guess. but the president came out -- quickly finish that sentence. but if that makes the headlines tomorrow, i'm going to find out who did it. when a president came out for marriage equality, never paused there. when he came up for marriage equality, at least the polls showed that within the african-american community jumped from like 37% to 54% or something. it was a sizable leap. what i think that answers african-americans have been doing their work on this issue and the president's announcement i think gave them cover, you know, sort of like it is okay to go public with it in a way that perhaps they hadn't before. so i t
things. president obama in his address in the east room did not once mention raising taxes. >> bill: i caught that. i know that. right. >> listen, he campaigned on it. boehner's aides who i've been talking to a lot and i cover obviously, are betting that obama had a campaign message and now it is time for the governing message. you saw that on friday. he did not mention race. paper said we're not going to raise tax rates but we're raise tax revenues. they're saying something very similar. what they're looking like they're going to do is keep rates the same for the time being. take the loopholes close them. some of the deductions, cap deductions. that will bring them into a new year with some revenue and then do a reform of the tax code. that's not easy. we're talking about tough stuff. they're going to have to agree to how much revenue the government should bring in through new tax code. what deductions are worth keeping. i mean -- you have a huge divide on that. monstrous divide. >> bill: just on tha
back. then we have the interview that barack obama gave right before the election, where he said that immigration was essentially his top priority after they saw the budget crisis. host: we can read a little bit of that as well. guest: i was shocked when i saw it. it was amusing, because first it was off the record, then it was on the record. if this is your top priority? health care was his top priority in his first term and you saw how you stack up. i covered the immigration bill going to the senate in 2006- 2007, and it was bigger than i could have ever imagined. it turned into this massive conversation that was emotional and complicated. i thought, wow, that is a big issue. host: what barack obama said in that off the record phone call was that the second thing he was confident would get done next year was immigration reform and that he would be very blunt -- "the big reason i will win a second term is because the republican party has so alienated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the latino community. i am fairly confident that they will have a great inte

at the u.n.. the white house says president obama called palestinian president abbas on sunday in a bid to convince him to delay the move. the u.s. has been elected to a new term on the u.n. human rights council, winning another three years. the obama administration has played an active role of the council after the bush administration refused to take part. on monday, u.n. ambassador susan rice said the u.s. is determined to reform the council, saying it's too biased against israel. >> the on it states is clearly of the the human -- the united states is clearly of the view there are many flaws and i highlighted many of them regarding israel. it is a body increasingly proving its by you and we been proud to contribute to some of what we think are the final moments of the human rights council approach to syria, sudan, its approach to the situation in libya with the commission of inquiry's. >> the human rights vote comes just as the united nations general assembly is set to approve its and a measure calling for into the u.s. embargo on cuba. the house is holding hearings today into the men

their rights and liberties. the leader of the movement tells politico that mr. obama's re-election is what he called a cat liezing moment for his group's efforts to leave the united states. he insists "this is not a reaction to person but policy." and what they see is a federal government disconnected from its constituents. really? so far no response from the white house. even though the number of signatures far surpasses the 25,000 needed for a white house response. for his part, governor perry says he believes in the greatness of our union and nothing should be done to change it although he says he shares the frustrations a lot of americans have with the federal government. texas is america's second biggest state in both area and population. it was its own nation for ten years before joining the union in 1845. and texas isn't alone here either. a number of other states have also gathered more than 25,000 signatures on secession petitions including louisiana, north carolina and florida. here's the question. should texas be allowed to secede from the union? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile, post a
, that barack obama tapped into in 2008. and remember, all these candidates were running with him this year. a lot of them synthesized their messages with them. sometimes a little bit to the right, sometimes a little bit to the left. but they are coming in as obama democrats into the senate and he's going to have some more forceful people in places like wisconsin, where you have a tammy baldwin replacing the much older -- her core is pretty liberal, but not a champion for liberal causes. maize hirono replacing daniel akaka in hawaii. warren replacing scott brown, what a change from a moderate republican to a very liberal, consumer-focused democrat. and murphy in connecticut replacing joe lieberman. very moderate guy, often voted with republicans. chris murphy, not so much. >> i was up with dukakis and he's working with a cause i help, helping people get legal protection for medical situations. and he was killed for being a liberal. i don't think he can run those kind of campaigns against democrats and say, oh, he's a liberal, that's it, end of argument, you know. >> isn't that part of it, c
? president obama saying save the middle class. extend the bush tax cuts. rich edson at the white house right now. rich, one of the other things he said that the cleanup for superstorm sandy was fast and aggressive. i guess he hasn't been to breezy point or staten island recently because, man, it is still a mess there. >> he heads to new york to survey damage but i think what we got is an opening for compromise. i will take a look attacks reform and serious look at earn titlements. we don't have many details on that. we're at the stage of negotiations where neither side is providing many details just the willingness where you are willing to go on this? one of the questions people are asking, are you president obama, firm on commitment tax rates must go up on those earning $250,000 a year. that is the signal we had gotten from the white house press secretary. we had not got that from the president himself. he showed a little wiggle room there. take a listen. >> i am open to new ideas if republican counterparts or some democrats have a great idea for us to rise revenue, maintain progressivety,
to be objective, but it is not right. that is the real issue. why did the obama administration put an actor in a military role, then as the head of the agency evaluate the actions? i think we need a national debate about obama's troop escalation in afghanistan. it was a failure. obama is now committed to withdrawing in 2014. that is generally a good thing, but did we need the true escalation, how well did it work, should we do more? all of that cannot be addressed unless we have a national debate on the policy. am sure general petraeus' issues and other security issues were there, but that is really not the issue here. >> it is interesting. all of this takes place as roger bales is being questioned for the murder of 16 afghans. he is now at fort lewis-mcchord in washington state. >> that is another issue. i am from a military family. i really mind that the events in afghanistan are on stage. we know almost no media reporting on afghanistan. our guys are out there fighting, and if they get killed, it is on page 17. it is not right for a country to be at war unless it is committed to the war.
goldfarb rights. -- writes. host: there is what president obama said in the past that he might do. we're turning to you outside washington today to get your take on this. can it be part of a grand bargain to avoid a fiscal cliff? bob, your first. caller: i never understood, when you are eligible of age to go on medicare, that that is the simultaneous with social security. i do not understand why those are staggered. for all the republicans out there, i agree, i am a fiscal conservative, that the very least to raise the eligibility age from 65 to 67 in medicare should absolutely be on the table. i would like to say, i do not get why we do not use our institutions, government institutions. to allow for people like myself, i pay about $7,000 per year out of pocket or an individual policy that i do not use. i might use $200 per year out of 7000. if they give that money to medicare so that i can buy into medicare, i am 54, and spend my next however many years prior to going on medicare paying into medicare on an individual policy, i bet you that there are millions like me read the governme
and the power to convene. we need president obama to convene the right people together and set the agenda, which includes when the agenda is done. so the andrews air force base example. you don't amount to-month-olds finished. can we get that done? quite frankly, what american businesses are doing, they are planning a contingency to hold capital expenditures and lay people off in the potential that we will have a recession. in the bubble in washington, we determined how to keep our friends on the right or left by how we behave, the american people are the ones who suffer because we are the ones who laid them off. because we know how to respond to this situation. >> the president has to do that. the president has to meet with the leaders of the congress, collectively and individually. without the press necessarily being in the room. he heads to set the agenda. he needs to, you know, talk about what needs to be done. next year is going to be a window of opportunity which we won't have for three years after that. we could have tax reform and we could have energy legislation. but we haven't even had
fifth amendment rights. when he was asked about his company's role in the outbreak. >>> president obama visit staten island, new york. one of the areas hardest hit by hurricane sandy. it comes as new york's attorney general subpoenaed two power companies into a probe into their performance. reports say the subpoenas demand con ed and long island power authority turn over details of their preparations for sandy and their performance in its aftermath. the storm left more than 8 million without power. >>> straight ahead your thursday morning weather and in sports, what's worse? shooting under your own basket or missing three times? shooting under your own basket or missing three times? okay, now here's our holiday gift list. aww, not the mall. well, i'll do the shopping... if you do the shipping. shipping's a hassle. i'll go to the mall. hey. hi. you know, holiday shipping's easy with priority mail flat rate boxes from the postal service. if it fits, it ships anywhere in the country for a low flat rate. yea, i know. oh, you're good. good luck! priority mail flat rate boxes. online pricing
done it. should the house do it? >> the house should do it, but make sure they get the right framework in place. what president obama is really trying to do now is play russian roulette with the nation's fiscal health and essentially the republicans need to agree to that. but they need to get more compromise. the president said he wants to compromise, but he's shown no impetus to compromise because he said if he don't raise the rates on the top 2%, then it will go up for everyone. that's bunk and we all know it. what we can do is cap the deductions at $50,000 and get 80 pill onin revenue versus the other. >> rick: ryan, hold on. ryan. ryan. i was reading your talking points you provided to us before the interview today. it says the bush era tax cut force the world's wealth yeast are the things driving the debility. the president doesn't agree with that. the president on wednesday in his news conference said it's health care cost that is the single biggest driver of the debt. so again, i'm going to try to get you one more time to give me some specifics here when it comes to health care,
on the minds of liberals in washington right now. i should say there is one fear -- that president barack obama will give republicans more than they need to accomplish the elusive grand bargain over taxing and spending. your comment. guest: i liked the idea that i only have one thing in my head. that seems like a beautiful states. the president i saw seemed quite clear on the fact that he says he is not going to -- he is going to follow through on what he said in the campaign, which is to make sure the tax cuts for the rich do not get extended. second is that jobs need to be part of the deal. austerity has not worked. cuts have not worked in europe and they will not work here. what he said in public is that he is not going to balance the budget on the backs of the middle-class and the poor. we need to take him at his word. at the same time, we know there are folks in washington who are looking at this as a chance to make cuts to programs they have been gunning for for decades. they see this as a chance to make cuts to social security and medicare. those things were debated in this election. the
spielberg film since he was probably 14 or 15 years old. we are coming right back. next, the sudden departure of general patraeus raising more questions. what is the truth behind his resignation? here to sort out the answers. and president obama's says he is open to compromise, so long as everyone does exactly what he tells them to. we're coming right back. why conservatives still matter. is what drives us to broadcast the world's biggest events in 3d, or live to your seat high above the atlantic ocean. it's what drives us to create eco-friendly race tracks, batteries that power tomorrow's cars, nearlyndestructible laptops, and the sustainable smart towns of the future. at panasonic, we're driven to make what matters most better. just another way we're engineering a better world for you. ve lately. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. sowitch to regions. a
it won't kill the country. it really won't. i don't understand why republicans don't take obama's offer to freeze taxes for everyone below 250,000. >> bret: all right. there you have it. so. >> two separate points. the first tax rates expire on december 31st. rates are going up for everyone, if nothing happens. if you think republicans can win a showdown on preserving all the current bush tax rates against a president just reelected and gained seats in the senate and the house on just millionaires. good luck. i prefer this as a policy outcome. i don't think it's winnable. i think in the end the republicans will cave. do you cave right thought and get it out of the way. 4% do it for a year little tax hate on the millionaires. get it out of the why is we can can fight about tax reform the big deal that has to happen next year or republicans will cave on december 29th. actual empirical matter. what were the fastest. >> i think '83 to 86 what were the top marginal tax rate. 50%. honestly 35 to 389% by itself is not going to cripple the economy. president obama's proposal. he ran on it let h
of saying austerity. president obama got it right when he said this: companies are awash with cash, and what they've been missing are enough customers out there to prompt demand and justify them spending more on plant and equipment. businesses need customers. sales create jobs. austerity is the opposite of income creating sales. it reduces income. tax increases reduce income. spending cuts reduce income. both, i would argue, are the wrong medicine for the economy today. we've seen the effects of austerity. we don't want to follow these countries over the cliff gratuitously. thank you. [applause] >> i'm going to ask chad since you're cbpp was mentioned, do you want to respond to, you know, take the next -- >> yeah. i just have a couple things to say. our $2 trillion figure is not a recommendation, it's actually a response to the fact that everyone thinks that $4 trillion is what's needed to achieve -- a debt stabilization goal of stabilizing debt to gdp, to keep it rising, to keep debt from rising faster than the economy which, ultimately, is unsustainable -- how long that's unsustainable is

on the health care system. it is going to be dramatically bad. we are in this place right now. president obama has no plan to invent it is his responsibility to lay his plan on the table and to show the american public how you are going to get the government to live within its means and balance the budget beyond test taxing the wealthy which at most will raise $80 billion. i am interested in seeing that plan. . >> if you were a congressman, you would elect to have the trigger to talk about it every once in awhile. >> why do they not spend time doing something about it? >> to go back to the earlier question, given the state of the economy, it will take some time to get consensus. it will not be january 2013. it is going to be 2014, 2015 before that gets put in place. it is not easy to change the tax thing where you say to get rid of some deductions and loopholes. they are there because people want them there. we ought to get rid of a lot of them. there is a big debate as to which ones to get rid of and how. to think you will resolve it in two weeks or six weeks is foolish. >> you mentioned taxe
politician, more interestedded in cutting deals and chasing dreams. to the feverish right, it revealed obama as a eurosocialist radical, and republicans never explained how the 715 million tax cut in spending stimulus that even paul ryan supported was good public policy while obama's $787 billion tax and spending stimulus was freedom crushing statism and death of the american free enterprise, but, you know, that's the beauty of being in the minority. in reality, the stimulus was really early evidence thatc'Ñ oa was pretty much what he said he was, a data oriented left the center technicrat, a change the system outsider, govern to work the system insider. the first evidence that despite the flowery talk, he understood that bills that don't pass congress don't produce change. the stimulus is producing change. the wrap on obama was that he was a words guy, but he's more of a deeds guy. you know, it's not producing perfection, but making things better and better is better than worse. before the stimulus, 20% of the doctors used the lek tropical records. it'll reduce cost, improving care. it dir

president obama won reelection . he holds the edge in the discussion right now . speaker of the house john boehner immediately saying he generally supportive of trying to close the loop holes. do you see that as raising taxes? >> what boehner said and in the republican position since republican we should reduce rates have economic growth many of which are put in by obama for the solyndra green-type energy programs. let's bring the rates down. boehner was clear he wanted increase revenues it is not a tax increase to put more americans at work. if our recovery was growing the rate reagans did more americans would be at work. in terms of raising revenue which boehner grew about. if you grew the economy at reagan levels instead of two percent and obama and french levels, just growing faster and do that for a decade, the federal government gets trillions in taxes. we could undo the damage by having higher growth. >> gretchen: that's the difference in ideology. raise it to 3#.9 percent x. replace the alternative minimum tax with the buffet and raise the state tax and long-term capitol gains from
right. a large percentage of the income that barack obama wants to tax at the higher rate is small business income. the other part of it that the speaker didn't mention is the other big component of that income is investment income the money that the people put into the small businesses to create them in the first place. doug knows this very well that one of the big problems we have in the economy right now is businesses aren't inch investigating, they are not expand -lg your operations. can you think of a worst time to raise the tax rate on investment when investment went negative in the last quarter? if businesses are not investing they can't hire more workers and i agree with doug it could cause a ou double-dip recession. gregg: if you force higher income americans to pay more in taxes not through increasing their tax rates but rather closing the loopholes, deductions, credits and so on and so forth, that is still a net increase on that important sector. so how is that any more or less damaging to the economy? >> it's always bad to raise taxes. the economy common-sense is to kee

obama on the podium. he was aggressive, particularly on the issue of susan rice. >> you're right. this is not the kind of emotion that we have grown to see from the president. he tends to hold back a bit, not be as emotional. this was an area where the president came out very strong, saying that these attacks from republicans have simply been unfair. he called them outrageous. he said if they want to point fenger at anyone, attack anyone, they should dop it the ahim. take a listen. >> but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. and, you know, we're after an election now. >> the president also had some very strong words when it came to those bush era tax cuts saying that he will not extend them for the wealthiest of americans. he wants a comprehensive plan so that middle class americans won't be impacted over the long haul and the president believing and saying that even other economists agree as well that wealthy americans can
-called fiscal cliff is right smack in the middle of the agenda in washington, and as our cover story shows you, the president and congressional leaders have already staked out their positions. president obama called on house republicans to give certainty to middle class families by extending middle class tax cuts immediately, before they run out at the end of the year. "i've got the pen ready to sign the bill right away. i'm ready to do it." fairness in taxes proved a key issue during the campaign. extending a tax cut for the middle class now would effectively keep republicans from holding it hostage later in negotiations to extend all tax cuts, including those for the rich. "i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. i'm not going to do that." earlier, house speaker john boehner told reporters that allowing tax cuts for the wealthy to expire at the end of the year would be harmful to the economy. "the congressional budget office released a report that the
